Sunshine Salad

One of the hardest parts of keeping your weight where you want it is controlling the urge to snack. At the end of the day, I want something sweet to snack on that isn’t going to totally destroy my diet. Since I lost 40 pounds on the Weight Watcher’s plan, I often try to incorporate their recipes into my family’s meals. That way we can all eat one meal and I don’t need to worry about making two meals.

The 2 Weight Watcher’s Points Plus in this recipe are coming from the Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding and the Mandarin oranges in light syrup. You could substitute fresh orange sections and drop the Points Plus down to 1 if you want. You can also add in other fresh fruit like grapes if you have them.
